Sens are probably a better team than the Leafs, but you have to play good teams in the playoffs, and should the Habs advance the higher seeding they gained tonight will be invaluable.
Plus it'll be on TSN.
Pound Karlsson, pound Karlsson, pound Karlsson! When you're done pounding Karlsson, pound Karlsson some more. He played a pile of minutes in his three games this week after returning from injury. Pound Karlsson!
Sens over leafs decreases our chances of coming out of the first round (Sens>leafs) but improves our chances of winning it all (higher seed, avoiding the pens, letting bruins+leafs beat each others up).
Ultimately I don't care about winning one round. I care about the Stanley Cup. This is good.
